Police are encouraging local residents to “help make the holidays bright for Arlington County children in need” via donations.
“The Arlington County Police Department is asking community members to donate new, unwrapped toys to bring holiday cheer to children ages 1 – 17,” the department said. “Donations will be distributed by the police department throughout the month of December.”
Tonight (Tuesday), from 6-8 p.m., police will be collecting donations at the following locations:
- Lee Harrison Shopping Center (2425 N. Harrison Street)
- Pentagon Row (1201 S. Joyce Street)
- Shirlington Village (2700 S. Quincy Street)
The Shirlington collection is still happening despite the fact that the Shirlington light-up night was postponed until next week due to rain.
A separate collection will take place at Our Lady of Lourdes (830 23rd Street S.) on Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 6-8 p.m. For those who cannot get to any of the events, donations are also being accepted at police headquarters (1425 N. Courthouse Road) until Friday, Dec. 16.
